the gas that is its gas supplies for germany for eastern europe what it be that easy for russia to simply turn off the gas to europe. when we would not be easy though it would be rather difficult russia is hard currency reserves. in less than five hundred million but has that collectively the corporate sector the banking sector and the state sector when in excess of seven hundred billion so long that bases its intended. well in excess of two hundred million so it cannot afford it beyond russia can pretend that you can afford it. and god intended doing that. waiting to see how frightened the worst react. ok what about the possibility that russia will be selling its gas to china there's a lot of discussions of right now going on between beijing and moscow is a possibility that's a possibility but quantitative limits of negligible. it's the quantities i get too small to expand the quantities we would have to build a lot more pipelines and the soviet states not really in a bargaining chip at this point of time. ok so mostly russian gas will keep on flowing for the time being listed as of the
